Kootenay Rockies

Escape to the Kootenay Rockies in the southeast corner of BC, next to the Alberta bolder to discover vibrantly coloured lakes and awe-inspiring mountain ranges. Home to four of BC’s seven national parks and four mountain ranges, the area is perfect for an outdoor adventure of mountain biking, hiking or skiing. The area’s abundance of lakes and hot springs also make for a relaxing getaway.
